Home Aware technology

We all want peace of mind that our loved one is safe and well at home. That’s why we introduced Home Aware as an enhancement to the care and companionship services that we currently provide, offering a way to help keep families up to date with the activities of daily living at home. What is Home Aware? Home Aware uses smart, but subtle, sensors around the home to help to build up a picture of the activities of your loved one. It means we can 'learn' what a normal daily routine is, such as patterns of sleep and frequency of bathroom visits. How can Home Aware support me? By building up this picture, Home Aware means we can spot any significant changes in daily routine such as changes in appetite or mobility that could mean a change in support is needed. For example, it could alert that somebody has been in bed for an abnormal amount of time which could be an indication they are unwell. Ultimately, Home Aware is here to support you to remain independent and help you to stay in your own home for longer. What can it do for my family? Perhaps your friends and family live some distance away and they would like reassurance that everything is as it should be at home. Or maybe you have recently been discharged from hospital after a fall or illness and family and CAREGivers want to keep a closer eye on you. Either way, Home Aware can give them the reassurance of knowing everything is OK, warn them is something is wrong and notify them if things are changing. Talk to us about Home Aware Home Aware can support living at home, independently for longer and keep your family up to date. We can add it to your existing care package or just use it to get you started with Home Instead. Get in touch with us to find out more about how Home Aware can support you.
